The Maharashtra Anti Corruption Bureau Thursday arrested the principal of the Guru Nanak Khalsa College in Matunga, along with his personal assistant for allegedly accepting a bribe from a Mumbai resident, who had approached them for his son’s admission to the college.
According to ACB officials, the complainant wanted to enrol his son’s name in the college for class XI in the science stream and met Nikita Vaid, personal assistant to principal Ajit Singh Theti, on Tuesday. Vaid allegedly told the complainant that he would have to pay Rs 30,000 and would not be given a receipt for the amount if he wanted his son to get admission to the college. The complainant then approached the ACB.
“We set about verifying the complainant’s claims and at our behest, the complainant met Theti and Vaid in their office on Wednesday, and they demanded Rs 25,000 from him this time. We registered a case against Theti and Vaid,” said an ACB officer.
